Talking About Sex ~ Natural Herbal African Viagra
Yohimbe bark contains a chemical called yohimbine that can increase blood flow and nerve impulses to the sexual organs. The bark of the yohimbe tree contains a chemical called yohimbine, which is used to make medicine to help people who have issues with sexual performance issues.Cameroon supplies the majority of the raw bark in the commercial trade.

Yohimbine is not appropriate for unsupervised use due to potentially serious side effects; it is illegal in the United States to market an over the counter product containing yohimbine as a treatment for erectile dysfunction without getting FDA approval.

The bark of the yohimbe tree has been used for centuries by traditional healers and herbalists for its sexual desire properties. Without a doubt, the effectiveness of the bark in treating sexual performance issues has led to the development of a worldwide market for yohimbe products.
